Beyond classical design in Architecture
Current design processes in Architecture must deal with complex thermodynamic phenomena which are intractable with regular tools, such as convection in big spaces or radiation through large glazings.
Advanced Engineering and current simulation tools enable addressing those phenomena, opening a whole new world of possibilities for architects and designers.
Multidisciplinary collaboration as design tool
In Ingeenious we conceive the development of a project in Architecture as an Integrated Process (IPD), in which different professionals work together from the beginning.
This methodology, that probes itself extremely useful in classic architecture, is imperative for achieving new Energy Efficiency and Sustainability requirements.
Our architecture specialists help our customers address new design parameters in their works, thereby achieving more freedom and increasing the quality, rating and competitiveness of their projects.
For Ingeenious there are not two projects alike, therefore the number of applications for Advanced Engineering is virtually limitless. Some of the most common ones are the following:
Studies for Certification (LEED, BREEAM, VERDE, etc), energy consumption analysis, Energy Efficiency studies, Sustainability analysis …
INNER FLOW ANALYSIS
3D ventilation analysis, air quality, humidity and condensation, temperature stratification, convective drafts in atriums, spectral analysis for glazings and greenhouse effect, ventilated facades, psychometric comfort mapping, double facades…
Pedestrian comfort, urban impact, wind loads, complex building aerodynamics, natural ventilation, Free Cooling, sensitivity of climatization systems to wind-induced venturi effects, wakes or drafts…
FIRE AND SECURITY
Smoke propagation analysis, toxicity and visibility mapping, hot areas and evacuation times, design and analysis of emergency protocols…
ADVANCED DESIGN AND ANALYSIS
Windcatchers, venturi devices, spoilers, windscreens, HVAC components (grilles, diffusers, deflectors, louvres, bypasses, splits, ducting, fans, etc
